100 Views of the Golden Gate



With a bow to the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), whose woodblock series 100 Views of Mt. Fuji celebrates Japan’s iconic mountain, this book is a lush photographic paean to San Francisco’s world-famous icon—the majestic Golden Gate. In this tribute to the natural wonders of the San Francisco landscape, as well as the enduring marvel of the Golden Gate Bridge, professional photographer/writer and Bay Area native Harold Davis has created a collection of over 100 striking digital photographs of the Gate—the strait that connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean and the Bridge itself—taken from different vantage points, times of day and night, and seasons. Awash in color and mood, the all-color digital images in this book show that the Golden Gate is worth a look again and again and again.

* Includes reproductions of well-known Hokusai prints, as well as back stories for each Golden Gate photo.
* Author of a number of other photography books, Harold Davis also writes the popular Photoblog 2.

A Fork in the Trail
Laurie Ann March


A new cookbook, A Fork in the Trail, will forever change the way you eat on your outdoor adventures, whether backpacking in the wilderness, paddling, or even car camping. Inspired by foods from all over the world and the guiding principle of “if you wouldn’t eat it at home, why eat it in the backcountry,” Laurie Ann March has created 208 lightweight, mouth-watering recipes to turn an ordinary backcountry trip into a gourmet adventure.

Some recipes are cooked and dehydrated before the trip, a process that’s surprisingly easy. Preparing dishes such as Lemon Wasabi Hummus is as simple as adding boiling water. Other recipes, like Tropical Couscous and Chai Tea Pancakes, can be prepared in camp in just minutes. Laurie also demystifies backcountry baking; who wouldn’t want to end a long day of hiking with comforting Pear Berry Crumble topped with Trail Yogurt?
